    To which the appropriate reply is of course "No need for that, I'm a contractor, my house is cooled by the melting of Antartic ice imported especially for the job. Would you like a penguin burger?"

    I tried penguin burger once while on a trip to see the Northern lights. I was travelling with the Danish Queen and the Tauntaun we were riding froze to death. All I had was a replica light saber from IKEA, a packet of Penguin biscuits and a frying pan.

    I rustled up a meal fit for royalty. Delicious and we were rescued the next morning.

    36C now we're cooking.

    Been trapped in the house all day. Tried going out, was like walking into a hair dryer so ran back inside.

    I've just been swanning around the French Riviera where it was like that every day. Coming back to a mere 30 deg C in the UK is a relief.

    31° C here at the moment, and I hear thunder. Hopefully that'll bring a bit of rain to cool us down through the night.

    I tried a bar which has a/c earlier on. Tough, the a/c had packed up, but the beer was cool.

    Lots of nicely tanned cleavage to admire though.

    Sounds like you ought to try dousing yourself down with a cool madchen or two!!

    Got twelve bottles of cider in the fridge instead. Ice cubes are all gone within a couple of minutes

    Think my scalp is leaking in this humidity...
